Thimbles were given as love tokens in Victorian times when gifts of any type were discouraged between men and women. Peter Pan and Wendy exchanged thimbles and acorn buttons as kisses. In American Colonial times when items of jewelry were prohibited for moral reasons a thimble was the gift from a fiance to his future bride as a symbol of love and pledge of eternal togetherness. When she married the women removed the bottom of the thimble to form more of a wedding ring. With such a long history thimbles as a tender gesture of affection I have created a series of thimble necklaces.
This aged brass thimble hangs from a a pretty accent chain along with an acorn crafted of aged brass. The two dangle from an 18" flat cable brass chain that closes in the back with a lobster clasp.
Hidden kisses for you or the one you love to kiss!
